She really ISN'T dumb as a brick

Then the denigrating and downgrading and Clinton hating takes over. Who will tell Hillary? Who is brave enough to tell Bill and Hillary that it's over? It's been over for weeks but she just doesn't realize it. Even her campaign says she only has a 10% chance of winning , so why does she keep running.
More after the break.
Hillary did indeed make a tactical mistake (caucuses) which has cost her the lead and now finally the nomination. Obama has done a wonderful job to get where he is. That being said, she is the second most popular politician in the Democratic Party. All the whining and griping in the world won't change that. She has a claim on the VP nomination based on her showing in the primaries and Obama needs to acknowledge this simple fact.
The Clinton campaign continues; imo, because she is working the refs to get the VP job. This is one of the reasons that I reluctantly support Hillary at this point. I think she wants the VP and deserves it and she can't get Obama to offer it without the pressure of continued campaigning. On the flip side, I think Obama probably wants to pick his own VP and thats why he has refused to do the political thing and do a deal with Hillary.
If Obama were to offer the VP to her and she were to refuse it, the remaining rationale for a Clinton campaign disappears, at least for me. My take on realpolitick for the week.
